  • Dainichi Sanke for comments

    Do you guys ever experience post-koi show blues? It looks like after every show, at least in Malaysia, the koi scene becomes very quiet. I suppose it could be because our show was held in May during which time till autum in Japan when no good new kois are expected at our shores.

    Anyway I would like to share and invite comments on another tosai of mine that I bought in May to hopefully create some excitement during this quiet times. Like my Sakai Kohaku she is in the mudpond to be harvested this autumn. This attached picture was scanned from the cert they gave me and as such is a bit blurry. Please do not hesitate to give your much appreciated comments, good or bad.

    Thanks and have a great weekend. I know I will as I will be taking my youngest 7 yr old Koi Kichi son to witness koi being harvested from a mudpond by one of our dealers.

    Cheers, dtbh

    OO LA LA...I really like this one!! When this Sanke develops it looks like it is goin to have more Subo Sumi...The skin quality is very good... The beni pattern is flowery and not to complicated. This Sanke can only get better as it grows and mature.
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.

          The shape of the head is beautiful, and the Shiro on the head is so pristine. The red seems too bright, but I expect that is the result of the color resolution involved in the photography. I personally do not like the Hi pattern by the right eye. Otherwise, the Hi pattern is impressive. This fish will make quite an impression if the Hi comes along strong.

          You have quite the little find there!

            Very good looking little fish. Beautiful white, nice strong sumi appearing on the shoulder, lovely pattern balance. Keep us posted on this one!!

              I'm quite impressed with the potential of the black. located mostly in the white.

              When it quits it's growth spurt and begins to fill in, it will be a very imposing koi!

                    Thanks a lot to all of you for your comments. It is very encouraging to note that I have not made a mistake in buying this koi by looking at a photograph (the same one that is attached here). Photos as you all know can be very deceiving esp on the beni and shiroji. However they do not normally "tell lies" about the body shape/frame. I just love the good body shape (with a big head, long body and thick tail tube) and the sumi quality of this tosai.

                    I think I will enjoy this sanke for a long time. I will post more photos of her when she comes back end of this year.

                    Thanks again.

                      And btw, how about posting your latest Sakai jumbo tosai kohaku. Having seen that in person myself, I would say even a pix post will not do 'justice' to that 'exceptionally' beautiful sakai jumbo tosai kohaku! The beni, the sharp kiwa, the least sashi and the 'whiter than white' snow white, the body size and length for a tosai.... WOW!!!
                      Hi Roger, this sanke is from Dainichi bought during the Dainichi Carnival at Narita Koi Farm. It is already in their mudpond and come year end I expect her to be low 50's cm as a Nissai. I am glad you see a potential in her too. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope that she will develop well over the next few months.

                      As regards my recent purchase of that Sakai tosai kohaku (offspring of Ruby) I did not take any photo of her yet and she is still at the dealers. I should be taking her home this weekend and when I have a photo I will share with you all in this forum.

                      Cheers, dtbh

                        As promised, this is the latest photo of her. She came back to M'sia in Feb 06 and was kept in Sentul Koi Park Centre until 2 weeks ago as I had limited pond space then.



                        She now is 58cm. To me the shiroji is still good except for the slight yellowish tinge on the head. Note the ginrin scales on the white (some matsunosuke genes?). The beni is good. As expected the hi on the last patch as seen on the previous photo has faded completely and the hi patch on the head had shrinken a bit. All in all I am glad with its development. The sumi IMHO is of top quality and well placed. I think I will have a long time of enjoyment with this one. Hope you like her too.

                        Thanks, dtbh

                          Beautiful shiro. I would not recognize it as the same fish. I get concerned whether the Hi will continue to retract on the head, but I do think you are going to enjoy this one.
